PUBS, bars and restaurants will face a new 6pm curfew in Wales, and the sale of alcohol in them will be banned.

Many pubs across Torfaen have decided to close completely in response to the new rules announced by first minister Mark Drakeford.

Under the new guidance, pubs, bars and restaurants will be forced to close at 6pm each night.
